Transport in Morbi
It is a fact that Morbi does not have any airport. The nearest airport is located at Rajkot, which is almost 70 Km from this city. What is more, even though Morbi has two railway stations, not many trains stop there. There is of course a third railway station at Wankara; but that too is around 27 Km from here. Therefore, if anybody wishes to visit Morbi, it is far easier to travel to Rajkot by air or rail and then take a road transport from there. As we have already mentioned, the distance between the two cities is around 70 Km. One can also come here via Ahmadabad; but that is located at a distance of around 190 Km from Morbi and therefore, one will have to spend more time travelling by road.

SH 24 is another important road for Morbi. It runs from Rajkot to Navalakhi. However, the road is mostly referred as the Morbi Bypass or Morbi-Rajkot Bypass because the road actually bypasses the city. Unlike SH 22, it does not run through the town. Recently, the government of Gujarat has upgraded the Morbi Bypass- Navlakhi Road into a two-lane highway.
The third important road in this town is the Navalkhi Road. The rulers of erstwhile princely state conceived this road for connecting Morbi with Navalakhi port. It now connects SH 24 (Morbi Bypass) with SH 22. The Morbi Railway Station is located on this road. The fourth important road in this town is the Vavdi Road. It starts from Vavdi in Rajkot district and runs through the Morbi city to meet Mahendrapara Road.
